Little Gifts

My Mother always says, "Good things come in little packages."

Us beaders know the tremendous value and excitement found in those little baggies that hold beads, findings, scraps, someone else's treasures they no longer need.  All good things, indeed!

Cynthia and I got together to bead a couple weeks ago.  It was supposed to be a day on the High Line in NYC, beading and chatting away.  The weather had other plans for us.  While the High Line would have had a nicer view, in the end we did just fine at a cafe table at a Barnes and Noble off the Interstate somewhere in NYState.  That is all we ever really need ~ a table to work on an a place to sit.
Cynthia gave me a pair of awesome ear wires made by her Fabulous Bead Girl!  I love the shape and the size of them!  Cynthia also gave me a baggie of jasper rounds.

Here is what I did with the ear wires and jaspers...I hope the Fabulous Bead Girl approves :-)

(I apologize for the computer won't let me crop, rotate, or anything else for that matter.  I am not sure what is up and I have been working on these pictures for a few dreary days.  I didn't want to wait any longer because I ran out of hope that the problem would correct itself)

The earrings are brown glass pearls, peyote around them and the jaspers radiation out from the peyote weaving.  Very Fall!  Very warm!  Very Happy Girl here!!!

Thank You Bead Girl!  I love the wires :-D  And thank you Bead Girl's Mom ~ you Know I love matter what the size.

oh! these are fantastic, and the bead girl very much approves! she's smiling ear to ear knowing that you liked and used her little gift.

I love this look you're doing with encasing the bead and giving it some drama with those jaspers! they went to a very loving home :) they are so warm, and fall, and 'rocky' .... so very you my friend!

I can just see you both at that cafe table - fun! Those are my favorite shape of ear wires to design with and wear. And your beadwork is the perfect artistic touch to the lovely, curving lines.

These are gorgeous Christine! It must have been fun beading in a cafe. I'll have to try that sometime.
